Inner Wheel Ortona donates Defibrillator

Posted by International Inner Wheel | Jul 30, 2018 |

IW Club Ortona ten-year anniversary saw as a finale the donation of a defibrillator to the "Soccer School Elite" of Virtus Ortona Sport Association, encapsulating in a precious instrument Sport, Health, Safety and Solidarity. 

The delivery ceremony took place on July 13th , during the 1st  Virtus Elite Summer Tournament at the soccer field of  "San Giuseppe Cultural, Social and Sport Promotion Centre",  in the presence of a large audience of young players and parents, a representative of Municipal Administration and delegates from Rotary, Rotaract and Lions Clubs of the city of Ortona. 

The defibrillator is a valuable life-saving device, as it enables the heart to restart in case of sudden cardiac arrest. With simple and clear vocal commands it guides the operator to carry out the resuscitation until the arrival of the ambulance.

Inner Wheel Ortona were particularly happy to donate a life-saving defibrillator to a Sport Association devoted to soccer training of new generations and also close to the socio-educational needs of disadvantaged groups in the Ortona territory.  Virtus Ortona carries on projects involving children with special educational needs and guests of the Therapeutic Community for drug addiction recovery. All that is perfectly in harmony with the mission of our Association which places in the forefront the well-being of the community.
